Porsche 911 Speedster Web Special

It’s no secret that I’m a HUGE fan of the Porsche Speedster. Both the 356 iterations (who doesn’t love the Porsche 356 Speedster?!) and the 911 Speedsters in more recent years.

Replicas feel like “what’s the point” to me. Kind of like drinking decaf […]

Next Gen Porsche Speedster

I’m venturing to guess that I’m not the only one who loved the movie Top Gun.  I’d also be willing to bet that the movie propelled the 356 Speedster into more hearts than just mine (even though it WAS a replica). I remember thinking “I love this car!” every time I saw the movie. At […]
